Quote: “a thing worth doing…”
“If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing badly.”
G.K. Chesterton wrote this observation in his book, What’s Wrong with the World, (1910), in a chapter related to the education of children.
It is a catchy quote and worth thinking about (even if done badly … NOT). Take heart: Chesterton was a person who stood up for the amateur vs. professional, the generalist vs. the specialist.
